Transit and Parking Info for Our Berkeley Shop

We are located at 651 Addison St., Suite B, in Berkeley, CA.
We are on the west end of Addison St. near the Aquatic Park, the Berkeley Amtrak Station, and the 880 Freeway.
Our building is on the corner of Addison & the train tracks that run down 3rd St.

If you are visiting our shop via public transit, our most convenient mode is actually the Capital Corridor Amtrak, as the station is a two minute walk from our shop. This is also a super fun way to plan a special trip with friends if you're coming from far away, as you can all spend time together on the train and have an impromptu mobile Stitch & Bitch.
Bus lines 51B, 72R, F, and Z also stop at the Amtrak Station just around the corner from our shop.
Our closest BART stop is North Berkeley Station, which is a 20 minute walk through a great neighborhood or a short Lyft ride away.

If you're planning to visit us by car, there are multiple parking options within a block or two of the shop if you know where to look:
Parking west of the tracks (in front of our shop) is free all day with no limit, though spaces are rare.
Free two-hour parking can be found along Essex Way, which is a lot between the 4th&U Apartments and the train tracks.
Free all-day parking can be found off of Second Street under University Avenue. Even though it looks a little sketchy, its a great place to park during the day and is well-lit at night (though you should always take your valuables with you, even in paid lots).
Free all-day parallel parking can be found along the Aquatic Park, to the left of where Addison Street meets the water.
Metered parking can easily be found off of 4th Street under University Avenue.
Metered parking can also be found all along 4th Street, and along Hearst & Addison Streets east of the train tracks.
And if all of these options are full, there's a huge paid lot at the corner of 4th and Hearst that is a short walk to the shop, it’s very reasonable and close to the other lovely shops along 4th Street.
